December is upon us, which means only one thing… Christmas! I love Christmas and one of my favourite things to do is to search for the perfect gifts for my family and friends. So I thought I would kick of my gift guide blog posts, with a post about the perfect designer gift!
In 2016 I received the most beautiful luxury handbag for Christmas from my amazing parents and it has been a staple in my collection ever since. The bag is medium sized, grey and named the Saffiano London Tote costing around £199. I personally think this would make the most perfect Christmas gift for a loved one or even as a treat for yourself! This bag is the perfect sized for day use as it fits in all the necessities including purse, phone, notepad, snacks (obviously the most important thing!) and anything else you might need. It can even fit a 13 inch laptop in it, provided you don’t have it in a case.
The Saffiano Tote is such a classic bag in a sturdy triangular shape however has lots of compartments within to make sure everything is organised, which pleases me a lot. There are at least three large compartments with a zip up compartment in the middle section. The interior is also lined with a grey fabric, helping to match the brushed grey leather exterior. The brushed leather exterior means that no scratches show up, helping to hide any accidental damage, although most of the time the leather is sturdy enough to withhold any damage!
I love to style this bag up for more of a fancier look, however you can definitely style it down with a more casual outfit. It is very fun to try to match an item of the clothing i’m wearing to the colour of the bag to create a complete look. I also think that because this bag is such a traditional colour it is easy to wear with a range of other colours and patterns.
Although quite pricey, if you are looking to spoil yourself or a loved one I definitely think a designer bag is the way forward (it could be this bag, or any designer bag!) because they are such an investment piece. A designer bag can last a lifetime if looked after properly and mine looks barely used despite owning and using it regularly for the last two years!
As you can tell I absolutely love my designer bag and have definitely got lots of use out of it! I’d love to know if you have a designer bag on your wish list and if so which one? I definitely got my eye on a little Gucci number, but think that one will have to wait a little longer!
